[Cluster-devel] Re: [RFC 2/3] GFS2 rename race - lock reordering



Wendy Cheng wrote:

Currently GFS2 only obtains its rename global locks if the "source" is a directory. This could result a deadlock if:

- Node 1 does "rename dir1/file-a dir2/file-b"
- Node 2 does "rename dir2/file-c dir1/file-a"

Sorry, typo .. 2nd line should be:

Node 2 does "rename dir2/file-c dir1/file-d"
